My DriveThruHR Adventure
I wonder if high school seniors still receive memory books. Do you remember those? They were something like a “this is your life” and a “where will I be” collection of thoughts, pictures, etc. I still have mine stored somewhere and I mention this because of an entry I included. Responding to future job wishes I wrote that I would like my own talk show. Time has passed since 1991 but, while I do not have my own talk show, I was lucky lucky to be included as the guest on the April 11th airing of DriveThruHR.
My Drive Thru HR Adventure
William Tincup, SPHR, contacted me a few weeks ago asking if I would be interested in being on the show. I immediately said “YES” without any reservation. I’d listed to the broadcast before and saying yes was a no-brainer!
It would be appropriate to provide information about Drive Thru HR. This is an online “radio show” airing weekdays during lunch and is hosted by William Tincup, SPHR, Nisha Raghavan, and Bryan Wempen.
The DriveThruHR website tells us:
DriveThruHR aired its first show early 2010. What began as a way for the hosts to learn more about “what keeps HR professionals up at night” has grown into a popular internet radio show that thousands of HR professionals tune to for the latest news and happenings in human resources.
Through the magic of the interweb, the hosts of DriveThruHR are able to record shows from virtually anywhere in the world. This allows them to bring their listeners fresh, live shows daily, Monday through Friday.
How long is each episode?
Each episode is approximately thirty minutes.
Why do you call it DriveThruHR?
Because you can learn about the latest issues in the world of HR over your lunch break, in about the same time as it would take you to drive to, and through, a fast-food joint… only DriveThruHR is much healthier!

I want to thank all three co-hosts for allowing me to speak about HR and social media. We discussed my being the first person from the Mississippi State Council of SHRM to be featured on the show – and also the first person from Hattiesburg. I hope that I represented Mississippi well and was able to help reminder others of the fantastic people who live here.
